Eh. OL recruiting was a strength. Not sure who we passed over for this kid, but worst case you tell the story of how you took care of him and got him healthy and he's a VFL, etc. Might play well in back in Memphis.
There was speculation about health issues about him while he was at Whitehaven, wasn't there? I swear I recall seeing posts somewhere on this board about it. There's too many pages for me to go look through all of them, but I feel like that was definitely brought up.
I hate it for the kid if it's heart problems. That sucks.
That is what I heard back in early January was that he had heart issues. I heard it from a Georgia Rivals mod who said that the Georgia staff felt he may have been one of the most athletic lineman in the country but they were reserved because of the issue. I was a little skeptical about it at first, seems true now.
If that's true, it really says a lot to me about Pruitt's opinion of our returning OL roster (sans freshmen) and the possibility that they could ever be coached up (i.e. that he would take that risk on this kid, because if UGA knew, surely we did). Best wishes for a long and productive life for the young man outside of football though).
